Batteries: Widening voltage windows

Nature Energy volume 1, Article number: 16161 (2016) | Download Citation

Subjects

The energy output of aqueous batteries is largely limited by the narrow voltage window of their electrolytes. Now, a hydrate melt consisting of lithium salts is shown to expand such voltage windows, leading to a high-energy aqueous battery.
